Scan the shelves of boys’ toys or titles of their favorite video games. There you’ll find among their favorites, swords and shields. God has placed a desire to fight and prevail within their hearts. They slay imaginary dragons and rescue damsels in distress; these lads are small in stature but valiant in spirit.
“Who by [the help of] faith subdued kingdoms, administered justice, obtained promised blessings, closed the mouths of lions. Extinguished the power of raging fire, escaped the devourings of the sword, out of frailty and weakness won strength and became stalwart, even mighty and resistless in battle, routing alien hosts (Hebrews 11:33-34 Amplified).”
